After a successful four month run in Berkeley, The Marsh is delighted to announce that Lynne Kaufman’s critically acclaimed new play, ACID TEST: The Many Incarnations Of Ram Dass, is moving to The Marsh San Francisco from April 12 – May 18, 2013. The show will play on Friday at 8:00 pm and Saturday at 5:00 pm (except Saturday, May 11 at 8:00 pm.) For tickets, the public may visit www.themarsh.org or call 415-282-3055.
Performed by Warren David Keith and directed by Joel Mullennix, this is the true story of Richard Alpert, aka Ram Dass, the famous Harvard psychology professor and spiritual seeker, who, along with Timothy Leary, started the psychedelic revolution and then, in the third of three life transformations, went on to become an international teacher on enlightenment. “Just when you find the answer, the question changes.”
In December, the production travelled to Hawaii to perform the play for Ram Dass who has taken a keen interest in the show but is too frail to travel. He loved the play (he said his ego soared, an occurrence he has battled against for a lifetime!)
Lynne Kaufman’s twenty full-length plays have been produced all over the country, including Actors Theatre of Louisville, Magic Theatre, Theatreworks, The Fountain Theatre and The Abingodon. Warren David Keith has appeared at theaters throughout the Bay Area, including the Aurora, Marin Theatre Company, Word For Word and the California Shakespeare Theater. Joel Mullennix most recently directed the highly successful productions of Olive Kitteridge, More Stories by Tobias Wolff and Which is More Than I Can Say About Some People for Word For Word.
